Armed and ready with a diverse selection of quality hip hop, soul, funk, house, reggae, disco and everything in between, these are three of the most skilled, well rounded purveyors of quality music on the planet who have come together for the adidas Originals Laced Up Tour.
They are set to amaze audiences around Asia with blistering world champion level technical skills and unparalleled musicality in their first tour of Asia together.

Breathe & Stop Champion Crew Showcase
The Champion dance crew in each region from the August Breathe & Stop event will be performing a spectacular showcase demonstrating just how versatile and talented they are.
The showcase will feature a mix of different styles covering the spectrum of modern urban dance & music it is sure to be one of the highlights of the night! The mix will be provided by Heavy Boogie and performed live on the night.
With the August Breathe & Stop event focusing on the crew aspect of the adidas Originals brand expression, the November event’s dance component will be focused on celebrating the originality of individuals. A solo competition where all 15 members of the 3 Breathe & Stop crews make a return to the dance floor but this time, it will be to battle each other.
How it Works
All 15 dancers will start the competition together on the dance floor & one by one they are eliminated until only 1 left
0 – 5mins:
No eliminations so everyone has a chance to get into their groove.
All dancers freestyle together just as if they weren’t competing just throwing down in the club!
5 – 15mins:
1 dancer eliminated per min
This is when the action gets taken to the next level – 10 dancers will be eliminated.
15 – 25mins:
1 dancer eliminated per 2 mins
This is the serious business on the dance floor where the last five go at it!
The winner will be the last one standing – the ”Breathe & Stop Cypher One” champ!
The major focus in judging will be the musicality, effort & stamina and ability to be skillful over at least 3 different music genres that will be played over 25mins. Prizes and cash on the line for the top 3 and a crowd favorite award.
